PSN Gets Taken Over AGAIN! This time, by ‘Dead Island’ Zombies
The PSN has been riddled with problems in the past, but this time it’s facing the worst invasion, yet. Zombies! Dead Island zombies to be exact.
Deep Silver has just announced that Dead Island, it’s upcoming zombie action-adventure game will be taking over Playstation Home. This game is probably the most hyped and anticipated zombie game of the year. The publisher’s story trailer was a viral hit over the Internet, delighting undead fans with a brilliant cinematic sequence presented in reverse order.
Shortly after the game is released in September, a Dead Island themed mini game will become available to Playstation Home users. The mini-game will allow gamers aged 17 and up to play 10 mini-game challenges in 4-player co-op. Gamers who complete all 10 challenges will receive a special “Exploding Meat” weapon that can be used in game. Outside of the typical zombie mayhem, you will also be able to take a picture with a zombie and test your zombie IQ for receive 4 free PlayStation Home rewards. If you’ve ever had that debate with friends about how well you would or wouldn’t survive the zombie apocalypse, you fill get your first “official” test here.
Deep Silver is further interweaving the Dead Island experience into Playstation Home by making Playstation Home exclusive items. The developer also has plans to introduce more levels on a weekly basis and unlockable items. Hopefully, this won’t be paid DLC. If you pre-order Dead Island through the Dead Island themed kiosk in the Central Plaza you will also get a special “Exploding Zombie Outfit.”
